Poll: Working from home is not what it's cracked up to be

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced most of you to work from home. New research says even though you started off happy to have the luxury, it's not what it is cracked up to be.

That's because there is added stress when you work at home. 40% told a new poll that they had high or moderate stress distracting them from work, which didn't surprise workplace culture expert Joshua Evans.

"The reality has been quite different from the fantasy we had about working from home," Evans said. "The kids are home. Household chores are right in front of you. It's easy to lose focus, and therefore, lose productivity. The temptation of being non-productive is more present than ever."

Despite the distractions and stress, Evans says we may see more people work from home in our post-COVID-19 future.

"When we come back from COVID-19 we are going to see more flexibility from many organizations. But we are going to have to find a way to make people accountable if we expect them to maintain the work levels they are supposed to.
